Teodoro's story

Teodoro is 67 years old and had the opportunity to study through the eighth grade. His parents believed that an education would serve him well in life. Teodoro is married and his wife helps with the farm work. They have six children, but only one lives with them. Therefore, Teodoro has two people who are dependent on him.

Teodoro is devoted to agriculture and has been in this line of work from a very young age since his parents taught him the trade. He must travel five kilometers on a bicycle in order to reach the plot of land where he works. His schedule is from 7:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. Afterwards, he returns home in order to help with the household chores.

The money he is requesting will be used for planting corn, so he will be able to buy the necessary supplies. Teodoro dreams of providing the best possible education for his children so that they can have better opportunities in life. He also wants to improve the condition of his house since it is in a very bad shape.
